Spec Ops: The Line
on Sunday, February 10, 2013
In this supplemental episode, Roland takes a closer look at Spec Ops: The Line, and analyzes the positive attention it's been getting from game writers. Does The Line's story make up for its bad gameplay? Let's find out!
This video contains spoilers for Spec Ops: The Line, as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops (but that game is old, so you should have played it already!).
2012: The Gaming Year in Review
UPDATED with Part 2: Codeknight's Corner! 2012 was... a year in gaming. Just another year. But there was some cool stuff that happened, and this video is about all the games Roland played this year that he didn't already get a chance to talk about, including Spec Ops: The Line, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Tribes: Ascend, MechWarrior Online, and more!MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 5: MechWarrior 3 (1999)
Proof of life. This one was fairly involved.ELoG Awards: Best and worst of gaming 2014
It's Roland's third annual Best and Worst of Gaming video, with an idiosyncratic award naming convention lifted from Penny Arcade (just like Yahtzee did).MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 6: MechWarrior 3: Pirate’s Moon (1999)
Pirate's Moon is the real deal; if you think you pwn at MechWarrior, then you have to play this.Cold Fear (2005)
Just in time for Halloween (if you're in the continental US, and watching literally in the next few hours), Roland takes a sidelong look at Cold Fear, another Resident Evil ripoff in the vein of Blue Stinger, Dino Crisis, or Deep Fear (two of which are exactly the same game as this), and realizes his irrational hatred of Ubisoft was pretty rational after all.Shadow Force: Razor Unit
Secret Service: In Harm's Way was pretty good. For a budget game, that is. But FUN Labs took the same game engine and most of the assets and made... another one.
